Ok. Before I start talking about my raw food experience last week, I would like to share a picture of the cutest future triathlete ever - Carissa:
So if you are having a baby, you know what you are going to get in the mail from me :) Check out the TRIX website when you have the chance! Love it!
So I was traveling for the week in Jacksonville Beach for work. Usually when I get home from these trips I feel like crap. Too much eating out and wine. But not this trip. I was lucky enough to be invited over to my triathlete friend Doris's house for a raw dinner party. What the heck to you bring to a raw dinner party? I decided I would be safe with flowers and wine. Who would refuse flowers and wine? Anyway the food was AMAZING as well as the company:
Looks like pasta - right? Nope! It's all raw!
Raw keylime pie!
Needless to say, I was totally thrown back by how wonderful this raw food was. So I decided to keep up the 'raw' diet the best I could for the rest of the week. Found a few good raw places to eat and pigged out on veggies and fruit as much as I could. My runs felt awesome and my energy level was out the roof.
I talked to Big J and he was all about slowly incorporating a raw meal every week into our diet and then going from there. It would take a ton of time (which either of us really have right now) to be fully 'Raw' - but a meal every now and then is a good start! Also, I'm not going to lie. But I do like a steak and pizza every now and then :)
Anyone else interested in being a little raw? Anyone have any good sites or links?
